    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    During high school, I would receive mostly A’s on my writing assignments for English and was asked numerous times to partake in various writing competitions (I am also a fan of “big words”, like Fidus Achates or indubitably.) I believed myself to be an excellent writer. When I signed up for Mr. Chapman’s ENGL 1301 class for college, though, my self-perception altered just a smidgen. This was not because Mr. Chapman discouraged me, but because he never went easy on me and always expected me to give my best. The one thing that Mr. Chapman loves more than grammar or big words, like Fidus Achates or indubitably, is content. Does the writing in my paper connect back to my thesis statement? Is there evidence in the book, poem, or short story to prove my case? These are just a few of the questions that students in Mr. Chapman’s class should ask themselves before submitting a paper. Mr. Chapman is an excellent teacher because he is passionate about literature and will push his students to try, and then try harder.

    Course highlights:

    In Mr. Chapman’s 1301 class, I learned that one’s thoughts and how they correlate to the subject matter is more important than grammar or using fancy words that not many people have heard of. Mr. Chapman is very big on the idea that a whole essay, whether it be 2 or 12 pages long, should ALWAYS connect back to the thesis statement. For example, if a student's thesis statement is “Chopin utilizes irony in the last sentence of her story, "The Story of an Hour”, which states '..they said she had died from heart disease of joy that kills' in order to reveal how a person’s loss of freedom can inflict detrimental effects on one’s heart, even to the point of death.:, the rest of the essay should be filled with evidence of irony that is found in the story.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Every single assignment in Mr. Chapman’s ENGL 1301 class counts. No matter how little or inconsequential they may seem. If you miss one assignment...okay. If you miss two assignments...not that great. If you miss three assignments...even worse. Try your best to be punctual with his assignments because this shows him that you are a dedicated student. Also, put an effort into fabricating well-written essays. Content is key to Mr. Chapman. If you struggle with formatting papers, writing essays, or coming up with a solid thesis statement, Mr. Chapman is an excellent tutor and is always more than happy to help his students outside of the classroom. In every classroom, not just Mr. Chapman's, the professor love it when students participate in class. This means answering their questions out loud, no matter how scary it may seem, and giving your own insight to the discussion. When you speak up in class, the professor will more easily remember you than those who do not say anything.
